Flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) will be offering “distancing seats” starting next month in a move to encourage more people to fly again despite the threat posed by the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said all PAL and PAL Express flights would have the so-called distancing seats starting July 1.
She said PAL’s premium economy cabin class would have purely distancing seats, while the PAL and PALEx economy cabin class would have a mix of regular and distancing seats.
In the social distancing sections, an aisle or middle seat will be left empty in defined rows per aircraft.
Villaluna said a distancing seat is not an added fee or travel extra.
